    Last month I applauded the series refinding its footing and getting back on track. Now it looks to be headed in a whole different direction. This is a most welcomed direction and one fans have been dying to see explored. The added bonus of Kirkman addressing Michonne's disorder seals the deal. This is a must buy issue. Read Full Review

    Like Brian K. Vaughan and similar masters of the cliffhanger, Kirkman takes pride in utilizing jaw-dropping last page reveals. Even with all the shocking deaths and developments seen in the last few arcs, I'm confident calling this issue's the most scintillating cliffhanger in some time. You'll be left with your snout once again buried firmly in Kirkman's hand, desperate to know where he'll lead us next. Read Full Review

    Following the rules of the George Romero movies, The Walking Dead will continue to be the front runner for zombie comics out on the market. If you are a follower of the series, this is an outstanding issue! If you are new to the comic, you are in for a real treat. Kirkmans love and devotion for his characters will continue to be the life blood for this series and pave the way for a new hope in a genre that seems to be on its last breath. Read Full Review
